How to cope with fatigue

How do I cope with fatigue?
If you have ever asked the question above then this post is specially written for you and also for those who didn't care to ask.

Fatigue is extreme tiredness, typically resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness. Oh yes, I got that from Google, you could also refer to fatigue as weariness, sleepiness, drowsiness, exhaution and whatever. It causes a person to feel tired and exhausted and usually results in reduced performance of work.

As individuals, we get a lot of work to finish up and most want to complete all tasks on time or probably at the same time, that we put our minds and our whole selves into them so much that we are left stressed out. If you have ever felt the symptoms (headache, moodiness, aching muscles, loss of appetite) mentioned above then youre suffering from fatigue, admit it.

So what are the things that could possibly cause fatigue?

• When you get yourself overworked
• Lack of food or hunger
• Lack of sleep
• Alcohol and drugs
• Sadness, anxiety or fear
• Mental stress + Workplace stress
• Exercising too much
• Tiredness

Fatigue for sure has bad effects on us, if it didn't I wouldn't bother writing this down. Those effects include preventing you from working. Causing unhappiness and making one feel sluggish are still parts of the effects of fatigue.

And since fatigue is not some sort of disease but a symptom which can be felt and described, it can be treated. To treat fatigue you can do the following:
• Take plenty of rest
• Eat balanced meals
• Avoid overworking yourself
• Seek medical treatment when you're sick
• Avoid worry and anxiety as much as you can

Fatigue can be prevented through these ways
* Avoid doing too many tasks all at the same time
* plan your work properly
* Use the best method for every task
* Maintain good health and healthy practices
* Quit the work before you get tired

As you hustle and work hard and harder remember to rest too and always see a doctor for diagnosis if you're suffering from chronic tiredness. If you have other suggestions on how to manage or cope with fatigue then don't leave here without dropping it/them in the comment box...
